Captain Randolph Barnes Marcy was the first to chart this area in 1849 along the Canadian River for a route for travelers from the east coast to the Mississippi and put in on a map and book. Along came Colonel B. Groom who was a cattleman who owned vast holdings in Kentucky, New York and Texas filed his company brand in 1882. Although, hard times took place and his company foreclosed. This site was called Groom in 1902 and was incoporated in 1911.
